Classic Meets Modern and Dances With Indie is a music version of a 90s film that starred Daniel Day Lewis (for reasons that don’t matter I’m not going to name the film). But that’s what I’m throwing down this weekend on The Appetizer Radio Show.
We’re 5 weeks into a series that’s taken rock tracks from big and little name groups and investigated deeper into their songbooks to discover things many people didn’t know existed. It’s been a fun adventure thus far. Last week, one of my favorite shows of all time, we did everything from Dave Matthews to Canada’s new indie act NikTex. This is stuff that other radio outlets aren’t touching at all, so you know it’s Rarely Tasted (the theme of the series).
Where do we go from here? Well, as the headline reads, we mix classic rock legends with some modern rock flare, adding a pinch of indie and and hitting frappe. If you’re into the rock that’s come out of California in the last decade, you are well versed in Payable On Death (aka P.O.D.). With several hit albums and award-winning tracks, their most recent release, When Angels And Serpents Dance, had radio hits like Shine With Me, the title track, and End Of The World. Fans also liked It can’t Rain Everyday, but most non-P.O.D. fans missed it. We’ll serve up this treat, along with fellow California act Thriving Ivory.
As for the classic rock avenue, we’re present 4 tunes from legends like Eric Clapton, Santana, B.B. King, and the icon of rock guitar, Jimi Hendrix. We know their hit songs, but what about some other examples of their brilliance and abilities? Tune in this weekend and discover some new things, and maybe become a fan of someone you didn’t know you liked.
We’ll conclude the program with a mix of indie talent that’s sweeping the nation from Harper Blynn, Joseph Arthur, Leona Naess, and Appetizer band The Rocketboys. While you’ve heard these acts on our show before, we’re featuring music this time that we haven’t presented before. It’s new stuff all around, and I hope you’ll check it out and let us know what you think.
